Due to the public broadcaster's inability to care about anything west of Ultimo, The Betoota Advocate will be hosting this Sunday's episode of ABC Landline. Tune in to watch us kick off this year's bush racing season.

ABC Landline on Sunday will feature the boys from the satirical Betoota Advocate, reporting from Quilpie in far western Queensland for the start of the 2017 bush racing season.

Australia’s “oldest and most respected newspaper” whose outrageous stories are frequently quoted by respected international press, mix with the Quilpie locals in an entertaining piece of social commentary.

Beef Central’s Jon Condon (pictured right) also makes an appearance on Sunday’s program, talking the cattle and meat markets with Landline’s analyst Kerry Lonergan.


  • Landline airs on ABC TV, Noon, Sunday 25 June.

    I think it was really unfair of Barb Dwyer to refer to Jon Condon and Kerry Lonergan as charlatans !
    Bring back those Betoota boys please Landline. We need more hard hitting journos, up with the issues of the times, like them.

    One of the photos in the above story shows two serious, well-respected reporters. The other shows two charlatans!
